English Tapestry Stag/Owl needlepoint throw pillow, Michaelian Home measures 18 inches square. Removable poly-fill insert. This design is from an antique pillow cover, circa 1600, in the collection at Colonial Williamsburg. In Queen Elizabeth and later Queen Anne's day, needlepoint designs were copied from a colored pattern called a cartoon. Women patiently filled in the pattern with wool yarn while the men made war. It is always peaceful at Robyn's Lake House, where one appreciates the calm and the peace.
